History on Sky Blues side

Coventry City host Barnsley at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday with history on their side in terms of their home record against the Tykes, who have not win in the city since 1923.

Oakwell boss Keith Hill has attempted to talk down his men's chances of ending that statistic at the weekend, telling his club's official website: 'At home, they'll be expected to beat us.'

As well as ancient history the Sky Blues will take heart from their recent home form with four wins out of five at the Ricoh, a sequence that has kept Andy Thorn's men in touch at the bottom of the table.

Gary McSheffrey has opened the scoring in three of those games and Thorn will again look to both him and Alex Nimely to take the fight to the opposition.

He will also be hoping that his faith in Cody McDonald, his only outfield signing of the summer transfer window, with the striker back in contention after a knee injury which has kept him since before Christmas.

McDonald came to the club with an unrealistic burden of hope placed on him because of City's scarce transfer dealings but will hopefully now benefit from lower expectation levels as Nimely carries the burden of being the Sky Blues main striker.
